to the california, his 17th, he did a public event aimed at the latino vote in the central valley of california where he inaugurated the cesar chavez national monument, the headquarters of the united farm workers. this was a very big deal and it really sort of dramatizes the importance of the latino vote, not just in california but everywhere in these swing states. when you're talking about colorado, nevada, this is a must-win vote. he's ahead by a very wide margin, but you've got to get that vote energized and pumped up. >> coming back to the debate, joe biden, the democrats loved it but he was criticized for being a little too hot, a little too much smiling, laughing too much and interrupting. obama had been interrupted for being too cool. is this like the goldilocks debate? too hot, too cool and just right next week? >> obama has a challenge because after being so low key at the first one, he has to come out swinging at the one on tuesday. you know, he can't be two different personalities. but the fact is -- there's a lot at stake at these debates. it's not just about the undecided vote. the

in northeast los angeles. it was predominantly a latino community. >> mostly illegal? >> i think it was a combination. there were a lot of immigrant families, but you know there were also legal and illegal family's. >> how did illegals view the illegals? >> i am not so sure about that because as a child, i don't think i was too aware of that kind of response from the adults. but what i do remember the most is being shy when i got to school. most of the kids in my classroom or dark-skinned and they look just like me and they had lost names like rcn gonzalez and hernandez and they could speak a language that i could not speak. that was really shocking to me because they looked exactly like me and yet they weren't. i would say that was probably the first time i was really aware of of the fact that there were a latino's, but they were different from me. >> you were in the esl classes, english as a second language classes? >> yes. >> was that a second class citizen type thing? >> yeah, definitely. being an esl student, that is who you are and that is the way people treat you, like an
his very harsh position on immigration, a position that is quite anti-the interest of latinos in florida. >> in fact, the numbers are overwhelming for the president still. >> no one has been hurt in america by this president's economic policies more than hispanics. 15% unemployment. almost 50% of college graduates of hispanic origin can't get a job. jobs and the economy are the number one issue for hispanics, and frankly, they don't want four more years of this. >> would you concede that in the hispanic community, latino community, that there is a feeling that republicans are very harsh in their -- and that hurts the republican party? do you concede that? >> i think politics, frankly, between you and i, i think democrats have done a lot better job, and republicans have. this will be the last election that a republican will win the presidency unless generically speaking, the partyoes a better job -- >> but -- >> but mitt romney is doing a great job. mitt romney has gotten over 40% of hispanic vote in florida. that's plenty to win the state. he will hold on to that, and there wi

poll shoes president obama with a two-point lead over mitt romney. the key here may be the latino vote which is heavily in obama's favor. what's interesting is only one democrat has won arizona in the past 60 years and that, you may recall, was bill clinton, 1996. both candidates are off the campaign trail today working on debate prep. president obama came under a lot of criticism for his performance in the first debate. well, he's get a second chance on tuesday. cnn's athena jones has a preview for us. >> good morning, randi. the second debate is on its way. why? because it will be undecided voters asking the questions. round 2, president obama and governor mitt romney face off in their second debate tuesday. a town hall moderated by cnn's cannily crowley which says the format presents unique challenges for the candidates. >> the challenge is that they've got to connect not just with the people that are looking into the television and watching them but to the people that are on the stage with them, some 80 or so undecided voters as chosen by gal up. gallup. so they have to keep that i
that hasn't come up yet is immigration. we know how important latinos are in the swing states. chris: we asked the matthews meters -- could the obama team have played things smarter after the debacle in denver in that first debate? 11 say yes, they could have done it better. one person said something like, "heck, yeah." and some lodged their votes with multiple exclamation points. including you, john. [laughter] >> i was in all caps with a lot of exclamation points. chris: was it a general sort of hand-wringing? >> yes, both. it was funny and a lot of democrats laughed at it, but it doesn't speak to the lives of real people. one of the challenges is to go back to the format. it's hard to prosecutor a case against the other guy when you're also trying to answer people in the audience. obama is going to get asked, there's going to be one person in the audience, i guarantee it, who's going to be the disappointed obama voter, like he faced in the town hall on cnbc. someone is going to say, you know, i believed in you, i really had invested so much in you, and you've disappointed me so much.
are not poor or latino or black. there were black and latino students not admitted in the same class she was. i think there is a larger pool that can be offered admissions. invariably, it is not necessarily because race is one of the issues considered among 12 different things considered. >> know. i don't think black students should be hard. i think educational opportunities should be ready at the elementary and secondary levels so that the gap is made smaller. >> how did she determined she had a case? >> the fact a transparency. she looked around. she did not get in. she thought she should have gotten in. she looked around and saw students of color who did get in who had lower grades and test scores than she did. she decided that maybe she was the victim of racial discrimination. she certainly was the victim of race being held against her in the admission process. whether she would have gotten in without her persistence really nobody knows. that is part of the secrecy of the process. that is one reason why this is so rare. she had to pick a long shot that this lawsuit would get her some more.

of their vow was to put down the unprecedented electoral up rising of minorities, black, latino, caribbean and young people that came out in 2008. >> gihan, when you say electoral uprising, you mean voting? >> voting. unprecedented numbers. yes. unprecedented numbers of people -- of the new rising electoral. young people, women, latinos came out in 2008. it was an electoral uprising, a beautiful one. when the extremists came to power in 2010, part of their vow was to put down that uprising. they have a view that politicians should decide their electorate. not an expanding electorate deciding their representatives. so they went to all sorts -- >> gihan, this point is such a critical one. what we're looking at here, we're talking about an individual private citizen, not elected, who is making lists of people that she believes are ineligible voters. i was sort of teasing and saying should i just make a list of like all my friends and family who i happen to know are likely to vote different than me and send it in as they are likely voters going to commit voter fraud. you used the language of v

. in the last cycle, 2008, obama turned out vote -- voters turned out in greater numbers among latino, african- americans, among young people more than than they ever had before. it was phenominal what occurred. he need to reenergize that group. he needs to reignite that group and he would not have to worry about anything else if he could do that. >> do you get the feel that the campaigns are geared toward that? >> well, i think right now where you see romney-reince are ryan are in good -- romney-ryan are in good shape. romney now need to push ahead and forge ahead. he has to provide additional solutions. what reagan did down the stretch to win, he got more specifics. if romney it is on the lead and plays roosevelt like obama did in the last debate taking the punches and hoping he can emerge, that would be a big mistake. >> but if you say what you can do, that can bring in the attack, right, mayor brown? >> that is true but he has to do it. >> that didn't fuel the other side, but in this case it is really about whether or not the obama operation which was incredibly superior in 2008,
